Shirodhara Treatment Parramatta

Glossy hair is something every woman wishes for! Healthy hair symbolizes a healthy body. Have you wondered how to get lustrous locks? Well, here’s a rundown on how to put the shine back in your hair and improve your health at the same time.

Eating healthy

Your diet is key to healthy hair and nails! Healthy hair is a result of bone metabolism & if your diet nourishes the bone tissue as well as purifies the fat tissue, your hair health will improve. Many people take lots of Calcium to strengthen their hair, but if the fat tissue is filled with Ama – the toxic waste-product of incorrect digestion, Calcium will not help. The fat tissue Impurities cause weakened bone production which is reflected in dull hair, weak nails, and problematic skin.

No Junk food

Healthy foods for strengthening hair

  • Include foods that help the growth of healthy hair in your menu like sweet, juicy fruits, cooked greens, and leafy green vegetables with a bitter taste.
  • Seasoning vegetables with equal parts of Fenugreek, Cumin, Turmeric, and Coriander, sautéed in ghee, will also help purify the fat tissue and strengthen bone tissue.
  • Healthy fats like Olive oil or Ghee in cooking is recommended.
  • Avoid foods that are difficult to digest and create ama (digestive impurities).
  • Stay away from excessive amounts of refined sugars; ice-cold drinks; cold food straight from the refrigerator; leftovers; processed and packaged foods; unhealthy fats; and heavy, deep-fried foods.

You should follow the diet that provides balance for you as an individual.

Warm oil massages

Massage the hair with warm oil twice a week if your hair is dry. If the hair is oily, massaging once a week is enough. A warm-oil massage stimulates the scalp and helps moisturize the hair and scalp. Ayurvedic hair spa Sydney will be an added advantage for hair maintenance.

The herbal formula assists to produce balance in the system internally to produce shiny hair. The Ayurvedic treatment Sydney does not just provide powerful nourishment for the hair to produce healthy lustrous hair but can bring peace of mind as well.

As per Ayurveda, what we eat affects our body and mind! The timings of our meals are equally important. It’s said that Breakfast is the King’s meal, Lunch is called the Queen’s meal and Dinner a Pauper’s meal. But many of us tend to skip dinner as we feel that eating at night will make us fat. But, dinner is one thing that you need to be very careful about! As the last meal of the day, it is important to have it at the correct time and eat the right thing and it tends to be healthy for your body.

Eating a few foods creates an imbalance in the Kapha Dosha and you must avoid eating them at night. Junk food, oily food, non-vegetarian items, frozen food, heavy-to-digest food, curd, or ice cream are definitely not preferable as they are harmful to health.  There are few ayurvedic superfoods that can be practiced for being healthy.
